Microsoft pushes KB5022303 update to Windows 11 for Patch Tuesday

Patch Tuesday

It’s the second Tuesday of the month, so that can mean only one thing: it’s Patch Tuesday. The update you’re looking out for this month is KB5022303, once it’s installed on your computer, your OS Build should be 22621.1105. Given that much of the last month has included holidays, it’s not too surprising that the highlights in this update are a bit scarce. Here are the full release notes:


  • This update addresses security issues for your Windows operating system.


This security update includes quality improvements. When you install this KB:

  • This update addresses issues that affect the Local Session Manager (LSM). These issues might allow users who do not have admin rights to perform actions that only an admin can.
  • This update addresses a known issue that affects apps that use Microsoft Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) SQL Server Driver (sqlsrv32.dll) to connect to databases. The connection might fail. You might also receive an error in the app, or you might receive an error from the SQL Server.

IT admins

Using provisioning packages on Windows 11, version 22H2 (also called Windows 11 2022 Update) might not work as expected. Windows might only be partially configured, and the Out Of Box Experience might not finish or might restart unexpectedly. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files which are used to help configure new devices for use on business or school networks. Provisioning packages which are applied during initial setup are most likely to be impacted by this issue. For more information on provisioning packages, please see Provisioning packages for Windows.

Note Provisioning Windows devices using Windows Autopilot is not affected by this issue.

Windows devices used by consumers in their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue.

If you can provision the Windows device before upgrading to Windows 11, version 22H2, this will prevent the issue.

We are presently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

To mitigate this issue, you can use file copy tools that do not use cache manager (buffered I/O). This can be done by using the built-in command-line tools listed below:

robocopy \\someserver\someshare c:\somefolder somefile.img /J


xcopy \\someserver\someshare c:\somefolder /J
